    I was wondering if you can keep the more than one Peacocks together in with the peahens and if so how many.

    Also, would they have to have been brought up (flock/litter mates) together?

    I have 2 adult Peahen now, their mate passed away last spring I am getting one male but the guy is also offering his brother will I have problem later also if I introduce another male later I suspect they will fight like roosters would?


    (I reread my post didn't realize it had said hens I changed It to proper wording, I don't mix me fowl [​IMG])
    Thank you for your knowledge in advance

    Peacocks normally get along fine with chickens and act as if one of them but be aware they may have a rustle. Diseases may also be a problem.

    Thanks WillGriffin03
    I reread my question and spell correct put in hen instead of Peahen. I don't mix different fowl I was wondering do the Peacocks when there is more than one if they fight with each other to be the flock leader or can I add another Peacock in later years?
